Chris Okafor, the leader of the Liberation City World Outreach Ministries, reportedly said in October last year that Zimbabwe would have a new president by March this year and the incumbent president, Robert Mugagbe would die.
The prophecy may not have been well-received by Zimbabwean authorities as security agents have prevented him from entering the country and detained two of his co-pastors.
It was said that Okafor is not the only “man of God” that has prophesied Mugabe’s death over the past few years. In January, during a New year’s day service, a popular controversial Malawian prophet, Austin Liabunya had predicted the supposed imminent demise of Mugabe and this was not the first time the maverick prophet had predicted such about Mugagbe.
According to New Zimbabwe.com, seven members of Okafor’s church had arrived in Zimbabwe on Sunday to prepare for the pastor’s “grand” arrival at a conference organised by local cleric, Joseph Magorimbo.
The report said five of the Nigerians were deported on arrival and the other two, who arrived on a different flight, were allowed into the country. The two were later taken for questioning with Magorimbo for five hours with Magorimbo accused of inviting Okafor.
A source said security agents claimed:
kafor prophesied something against the president. But they have not said what it is Okafor said
The source was quoted as saying,
Okafor was supposed to arrive tomorrow (Wednesday), but he has since cancelled the trip.
Magorimbo, the report said, was later released while the two Nigerians were taken to an unknown destination in a truck.
Magorimbo’s lawyer, Jonathan Samkange, also confirmed that state security agents had interrogated his client and the two Nigerians.
